International Student & Scholar Services
The mission of International Student & Scholar Services is to create a welcoming environment for international students & scholars by providing assistance with cultural adjustment, academic and professional growth, immigration services, and personal support. We support international students and scholars who attend UNC as well as UNC Faculty that work with these populations.
We support F-1 students and their F-2 dependents, and J-1 Exchange Visitor students and scholars, and their dependents.
We also provide information and assistance to campus partners who work with international students and scholars.

Updated Insurance Information
In June of 2019, the UNC Board of Trustees passed new university policies regarding international student insurance. All policies must meet the minimum requirements specified for international students to be waived out of the university insurance. If students do not demonstrate comparable coverage, they will not be able to waive the insurance. This new policy helps the university to remain compliant with federal regulations.
Spring Break Travel 2020
UNC and the Center for International Education are carefully monitoring the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The University is in contact with local health officials and is following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other public health agencies. In an abundance of caution, the ISSS team is suggesting that international students carefully consider the potential impact of international travel over spring break. If you do choose to travel, please insure that you have an up-to-date travel signature.
